Courtney Love to Pen Memoir

So you thought you knew everything there is to know about Courtney Love well think again there's a whole lot more to learn apparently since Love has announced she will be writing her own memoir.

After signing a deal with William Morrow, an imprint of Harper Collins, it was announced that the Hole front woman plans to "set the record straight" with her new book.

It's hard to think that there might be any aspect of Love's life that we don't know about given the intense media scrutiny and numerous documentaries on Love and her life with Kurt Cobain but officials claim her memoir will address Love's marriage to Cobain, her drug addiction issues and her childhood.

The book is as yet untitled and is due for release in autumn 2012.

Today's Song of the Month features Don't Dance Her Down Boys regular Kristin Hersh. Now I post a lot about Ms Hersh mainly because she has 25+ years of mind blowing art to her name so I'm discovering new things everyday but I swear you won't be disappointed by this song.

The Song of the Month is 'Sundrops' by Kristin Hersh, lead singer of Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave, from her debut solo album 1994's Hips and Makers. There are not many people that could make such a rousingly uplifting song using just a guitar and their voice.

Also for all the guitar players out there it's a testament to the depth of Hersh's songwriting and musical ability that she can create a beautifully complex song just using movable chords.

This should brighten up your Monday morning.
